Kevin Sumlin and the Texas A&M Football coaches hosted the first junior day of the spring on Sunday. All six of the commits for the 2014 class were in attendance, and the Aggies secured their first OL commit for the ’14 class.
Kealvin “Tank” Davis gave his verbal pledge to Sumlin and the Aggies according to Billy Liucci at TexAgs.com. Davis is 6’4″ 265 lbs and plays left tackle for Lakeview Centennial Patriots.
Liucci compared Davis to current Aggie offensive lineman Cedric Ogbuehi and that is a very accurate comparison. Ogbuehi is a future NFL left tackle who looks more like a large linebacker than an offensive lineman.
Ogbuehi was listed at 6’5″ 270 lbs when he left Allen (TX) High School and enrolled at A&M. Davis should be right around that size when he enrolls in the Fall of 2014.
Davis displays exceptional mobility in his highlights. You do not often see left tackles asked to pull, yet Davis does it repeatedly for Lakeview. He is obviously a tremendous athlete who has as high of a ceiling as any offensive lineman in the 2014 class.
In the spring Davis throws the shot and discus with the Lakeview track team. He has the long arms that you want in an offensive tackle, but his quick feet are what set him apart. Luke Joeckel is projected to be a top five pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. He should be the first in an assembly line of left tackles from A&M being sent to the NFL.
After Joeckel you will have Jake Matthews in the 2014 draft and Ogbuehi in the 2015 draft. After Ogbuehi you will likely have Germain Ifedi in the 2016 draft. Davis has the kind of ability to be the next in the line of great left tackles at A&M.
